No oil will be permitted to pass through the key oil transit Strait of Hormuz if the West applies sanctions on Iran’s oil exports, Iranian Vice President Ali Rahimi warned on Tuesday.

The threat was reported by the state news agency IRNA as Iran conducted navy wargames near the Strait of Hormuz, at the entrance of the oil-rich Gulf.

“If sanctions are adopted against Iranian oil, not a drop of oil will pass through the Strait of Hormuz,” Rahimi was quoted as saying.

“We have no desire for hostilities or violence ... but the West doesn’t want to go back on its plan” to impose sanctions, he said.

“The enemies will only drop their plots when we put them back in their place,” he said.


Iran to Declare War on the World

"We'll huff, 'n puff and blow your house in," says the regime.

And the West, Arab Neighbors and the USA willrightly treat such actions in international waters as an act of war. 

Time to call Iran's bluff.   Get the troops ready in Kuwait.  Summon all fleets.  Ready the cruise missiles and predators.

It would seem to be of a reasonable measure and expected from any nation should a hostile action, a military embargo, be put on its exports.


One with a fair sense of justice, need to condemn all actions that is leading to war.  An illegal embargo, much as Israel has put on Gaza, is an act of war and any measured retaliation would be just.


Now, should IRI unilaterally and unprovoked begin by closing this passage, that would deserve also every one’s condemnation and a measured retaliation by the international community.

Well that was the genius of "Islamic Republic". Its architects like Shariati did not have the brain to think "Do the non Muslims people matter".

It was too much for the an-tellectual morons to grasp.

How does IRI

by Veiled Prophet of Khorasan on


plan to do stop oil movement through Hozmozd? 

  • If they try naval force they have no change against America.
  • If they try missiles USA will blow all their launch sites up.
  • Plus America may "re-flag" ships meaning they will be "American". Then any attack on them will be on USA bringing retaliation. Reagan did that in the Iraq war.

It just gives a feeling that IRI wants a fight. Maybe they think people will support them. Reading some of the posts on IC some people might but only from behind a computer. It won't do any good an IRI will go down and hard.

There are many ways to bring its own end but few are as sure as interrupting oil. It takes an amazing degree of stupidity to do so but they just might.

EXCERPT:  There‘s no shortage of stories surrounding Iran’s continually-horrendous human rights record. Following the Christmas holiday, Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW), a U.K.-based nonprofit, is making some startling charges. According to the group, Iranian authorities raided a church that was celebrating Christmas last week and detained everyone in the building — including kids who were in Sunday school.
